My Take on the Violence of Antifa:
As the news about the violence of Antifa shows, Antifa is a violent, repugnant ideology. Antifa is an organization by, of, and for socialistic wannabe thugs. Those thugs, such as the hideous Stanya from Rose City Antifa, live out their dreams of violence by attacking conservative students and counter-protest groups around the nation.
Antifa rioters in Berkeley smashed bike locks into the heads of conservative college students. Antifa “activists” (read: terrorists) in small universities around the nation terrorize any suspected conservative college students through “doxxing” and shutting down free speech on college campuses. Those sad to view, bubble-wrapped losers care only about inflicting harm on young conservatives in a cowardly way. They don’t want to have a respectful political conversation, nor do they want to have a fair fight. Rather, they just want to inflict harm while safe in their groups of thugs.
Then, the latest Antifa attack took place when Antifa thugs attacked conservative protesters from the “Proud Boys” and physically assaulted a conservative journalist, Mr. Andy Ngo. That attack, while at its root no more vile or reprehensible than any other example of the violence of Antifa, was particularly shocking to the American public.
Why? Who knows. There’s no real reason that that example of the violence of Antifa was seen as any more vile than the others. However, an attack on journalists is an important step towards something darker. It’s the far-left’s march over the Rubicon on the way to political violence. Before attacks like this, the left could at least pretend it outgrew its violent past (Weather Underground in the 60s and 70s) that is described in America: Imagine a World Without Her. Now, however, the left’s inherently violent nature is on full display as Antifa thugs from Portland to Boston rampage around their cities and attack innocent conservatives.
Most reasonable Americans know that Antifa is a group of thugs. However, fewer openly admit that they think Antifa is a pseudo-fascist organization. Because Antifa is a leftist, “progressive” group, people are reluctant to say that Antifa is a group of fascists, even though it is a well-known fact that the Nazi’s were socialists. For some reason, people on both sides of the political aisle are loathe to show the connection between socialism and fascism. With the latest Antifa attacks, however, that connection is on full display and is, in my view at least, completely indisputable.
But, its latest attack on a journalist and continued attempts to shut down free speech show that most Antifa provocateurs are fascists. They hate opposing ideas and support the use of violence to achieve political ends. If that isn’t fascist or terrorism (or both), then I don’t know what is. However, I have the feeling that it certainly is.
We have to make sure that their violent, socialist ideology isn’t made acceptable in American politics! Unless we root it out immediately, Antifa’s violent actions might turn the United States into a nation at war with itself.
